While continuing to parade one neo-con after another on Fox for their opinions on the revolution in Egypt, The Journal Editorial Review's Paul Gigot asks Paul Wolfowitz about the Muslim Brotherhood's potential participation in the transitional government now that Mubarack has left office. Wolfowitz actually says something I agree with. Heaven forbid any of them will ever apply it to the theo-cons here in the United States.
GIGOT: Alright, briefly, very briefly Paul, should the Muslim Brotherhood participate in this transition?
WOLFOWITZ: I could offer you an opinion, but I really hesitate to do so because I think Egyptians have to decide that.
